World renowned esports team Alliance expands with today’s announcement of the hiring of Marie “Inverno” Gunina that will take on the role of DOTA2 manager.

Alliance welcomes its new Dota 2 manager Marie “Inverno” Gunina. Being a Dota 2 veteran, most recently with the Winstrike Team, Inverno has not only been a player herself but has also worked major events as a commentator, host and interviewer.

We’re very excited to welcome Marie to our organization. A world class team deserves a world class manager,” said Chief Strategy Officer Kelly Ong. “Bringing Marie on board will not only help our Dota 2 division immensely, but also take Alliance to the next level in anticipation for The International 2020 in Stockholm later this year.”

“I remember the year Alliance was founded very well. Back then, 7 years ago, I was at the very beginning of my career and couldn’t suggest I would ever be a part of this tag. Alliance has incredible legacy and I’m full of ambitions to help the team to multiply it” says Marie about her new position.

The first task with Alliance’s Dota 2 team for Marie will be the ongoing StarLadder ImbaTV Minor in Kyiv, which started on March 5. There, Alliance’s goal is to score the last spot to the upcoming Major in Los Angeles.

Don’t forget to follow Alliance on TwitterInstagramFacebook and Discord to keep up to date with their 2020 adventures – where they’re close to securing a slot at The International 10 on home turf.


Alliance is a world-renowned esports organisation fielding competitive players across some of the most popular video games in the world. Shortly after Alliance’s inception, their Dota 2 team, headed by Jonathan ‘Loda’ Berg, catapulted to the top of the scene with an innovative playstyle and went on to claim the Aegis of Champions when they won The International 2013.

Alliance’s mission is to create a lasting legacy that supports esports experiences across the globe. In working toward that goal, they’re determined to be a responsible organisation driven by their core values of dedication, teamwork, and community.
